While reading the local newspaper, her interest is attracted by an ad for a companion to a wealthy woman, promising an attractive life. Ellie answers the, ad and is accepted for the position. Arriving at her destination, she is met at the airport by her sponsor, a Senora Lupo and her manservant Pepe. She is driven to Senora Lupo's luxurious East Side apartment and there she is made to feel as one of the family. Charmed and completely trusting her new employer, after the treatment accorded her, she can hardly visualize the horror that the future has in store for her.
After being drugged at the apartment, she is driven to a large and secluded estate miles away from the city. She is awakened from her stupor by terrifying screams somewhere in the house. She rises to investigate and is horrified by the sight
of a young girl, nude and strapped to a bed, being flogged mercilessly by a woman who turns out to be Senora Lupo's sister. She is told by the latter that the girl is being punished because she tried to escape, and that if she, Ellie, tried the same thing, her punishment would be lust as severe.
The same night two of the male members of the gang decide to rape Ellie and are surprised by Pepe who challenges one to a knife fight, the winner to have her as a prize. After an exciting struggle Pepe wins and claims his reward.
Ellie becomes friendly with another girl, Baja, who relates to her in detail the lurid happenings in ,this evil house. The sisters advertise for young, unattached girls, promising them good positions. When the girls have answered, as in Ellie's case, they are forced into the life of party girls - satisfying the sensual whims of
the male clients of the house. Should they become pregnant or diseased, they are done away with as if they were sick beasts. It is while Baja, who happens to be pregnant, relates all these events to mile, that Denise, a pretty young inmate is tortured to death because of her attempted escape; is carried out to the gravel pit near the house, soaked with gasoline and set afire.
Everything seems hopeless for the unfortunate girls; with no chance of escape, since Senora Lupo had bribed the local police who even went so far as to assist her when any girl tried to escape. However, after many complaints to the police departments in the various cities that the girls had disappeared from, the authorities alerted the FBI since it was evident that an interstate crime was being committed. The chief of the local bureau and his assistant formulated a plan whereby they would plant one of their topflight female agents as a decoy. She was to answer the ad as the other girls had done. However she would be provided with a tiny but powerful transmitter inserted into her lipstick tube; a bra that contained ionized particles so as to keep her whereabouts within range of the agents; and other assorted James Bond gadgets and instruments. Everything goes according to plan. The agents pinpoint the exact location of the house, and after an exciting chase, the evil sisters and the remainder of their gang are captured. The ring is broken, and the criminals are brought to justice.
